Where does Massive Talent land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our next film to hit the Banana Meter is The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Banana Meter Rating: 82%

A wildly entertaining and hilarious film that doubly works as the ultimate tribute to National Treasure. As much as one tries to put the bunny back in the box, this is one massive talent you simply cannot Cage. Nicolas Cage is back for good… not that he ever went anywhere.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is everything you’d expect a movie starring Nicolas Cage as Nicolas Cage to be. It celebrates and laughs at Cage’s career and reputation that he’s built up over the years in such a funny, entertaining and, at times, bonkers way that always makes for a fun and entertaining time that you’re guaranteed to love if you’re a Cage fan whilst still providing enough to enjoy if you’re only slightly familiar with his career.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent Was hilarious! The movie was at its peak whenever Cage and Pascal share the screen. There Dynamic is what made this film worth it! BUT sadly I wasn’t a fan of the 3rd act, at one point, it stopped clicking with me. But I still recommend for people to check this out

If you’ve watched Nicolas Cage for years and were a massive fan of his, there couldn’t possibly be a better love letter to exist for the man. THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT is the most Nicolas Cage movie to ever Nicolas Cage on the big screen.

Banana Meter Rating: 84%

An undeniably absurd and massively fun tribute to the unbearably overlooked career of Nicholas Cage. The film packs a great amount of humor, emotion, action and self-awareness that you are bound to have a great time. As Nic Cage makes fun of himself with Pedro Pascal there to delight as always.

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

A perfectly balance of Ridiculous Cage absurdity with self-aware meta jabs at the Hollywood machine.

A refreshing an entertaining comedy, The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent works as a film on its own merits but it also excels at being an appreciation of one of Hollywood’s true acting mavericks.

Banana Meter Rating: 85%

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is the perfect celebration of one of Hollywood’s most mesmerising stars. Gormican and Etten have poured their unashamed love and adoration for Cage into the script and in return receive the absolute best from Cage. An actor who always understands the assignment he’s been given, Cage gives yet another accolade worthy turn, one that will only serve to endear him even more to those that already hold him dear.

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a lot of fun, and Nicolas Cage and Pedro Pascal’s on screen chemistry is a large part of why. If I have a complaint, it’s that it might not be bonkers *enough*.

John Maffeo

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

Nic Cage and Pedro Pascal are magic together in an action comedy that is consistently hilarious in the most absurd ways. The plot doesn’t always work but the self-aware nature of the movie and lead performances propel the entertainment value until the very end. A worthwhile venture for fans of one of the best working actors in Hollywood!

I’m not a Nicolas Cage connoisseur by any means, but I enjoyed the hell out of Massive Talent, which is surprisingly endearing.

‘Massive’ly fun! Nicolas Cage IS Nick CAGE in the this hilarious yet thoughtful and action-packed film that isn’t so much about a fictionalized Cage, but a film about the transformative power of motion pictures.

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a fitting homage to the entertaining, yet often misunderstood abilities of Nicolas Cage. I loved how self-aware this is and Pedro Pascal was great with the buddy comedy, but the action movie inside of all that is bad. Not at all as clever as it thought it was.

Banana Meter Rating: 82%

When focusing on being a comedy, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is absolutely hilarious. It’s laugh-out-loud stuff that’ll leave you in stitches.
